Equipped with advanced Cutting-edge products and designed to treat patients ranging from adults to neonates in ICU, CCU, as well as general wards and nursing care units, Philips IntelliSafari will travel to Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities of India showcasing the latest in affordable life saving technologies.
Healthcare technology major Philips India on Tuesday showcased its low-cost health technology solutions on wheels in Ahmedabad as part of its campaign to reach out to hospitals, nursing homes and clinics in Tier 2 and 3 Indian cities with an aim to familiarise them with the latest affordable innovations in healthcare.
“Through the IntelliSafari drive, we want to assure people that advanced technological solutions need not always come at a cost. Healthcare products which are affordable, and having high technology features and qualitative solutions are key to increasing access to healthcare in India and thereby saving lives,” Seshadri said during the flagging off ceremony.
“As healthcare solution providers, we are committed to making that happen by relentlessly working on new technology solutions,” he added. Equipped with advanced cutting-edge products, designed to treat patients ranging from adults to neonates in ICU, CCU, as well as general wards and nursing care units, the mobile van will travel to Rajasthan and other parts of India after covering Gujarat.
The equipment on display include Intensive Care Unit, portable patient monitoring solutions, networking solutions, cardiographs (ECG machines), fetal and maternal monitors, defibrillators and AED devices, and portable ventilator and BIPAP devices made by Philips India.
India has emerged as one of the crucial countries for the expansion of the Netherlands-based company, which last month launched new diagnostic equipment developed and designed in its R&D centres in India and manufactured at its facility at Chakan near Pune in Maharashtra.
Dr Naman Shastri, Cardiac Anesthetist, SAL Hospital, Ahmedabad, said, “A healthcare provider’s responsibility is to provide early and accurate diagnosis along with the best possible treatment. But the availability of latest technology at a price that can make it viable for hospitals to use them has always been a big challenge. With Philips taking such an initiative, hospitals can now focus all their energies on providing patients with the best possible healthcare services. Being committed to offer healthcare solutions to masses, it is our responsibility to provide early and accurate diagnosis along with the best possible treatment.”
IntelliSafari is a programme that gives healthcare providers in non-metros the opportunity to experience Philip’s advanced expertise and technological solutions, which brings quality healthcare closer to the masses.
The expert demonstrators from Philips help doctors and clinicians to validate the usability of these technologies in a ‘real’ day-to-day hospital environment. IntelliSafari was launched by Philips India in July 2012 and reached several Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in North India in the initial phase. The goal of the programme is to bring new life saving technologies closer to the people at an affordable price.
